Air Compressor Servicing and Maintenance Plans

Whether you want a one off service, a regular service plan or a detailed preventative maintenance plan for your air compressor then we can help. We also offer a 24/7 call out service if you need it – however, if you take our advice, you should never need it.

The big question is - how often should you have your air compressor serviced?
Well there are lots of variables to consider - what type of compressor - what size - how many hours does it run - what are your requirements from it?

My basic advice is as follows - For a Hydrovane or Screw air compressor, most manufacturers recommend 2000hrs or annual - that is for a new or as new air compressor. An older or less serviced machine would in my opinion struggle with 2000hr intervals - and a year is a long time.

99% of Compressorman's machines are serviced every 1000hrs or 6 monthly - even from new - regardless of manufacturers 2000hr/4000hr claims.(if you run 4000 hrs plus a year then servicing every 2000hrs will be fine). This way you get as near to 100% reliability as you can get and it is proven that machines which are looked after in this way last longer and are far less troublesome.

No one needs an air compressor which is unreliable and troublesome - especially Compressorman - so follow our advice and things can only get better.

Air compressor Service Prices

These includes oil and filter changes, service kits and all adjustments inc parts + labour and checks as listed by the manufacturer + a few of my own.

A word on pricing and costs, it is not possible to use quality parts and spend the time to do the job properly and conscientiously and charge less – it is possible to just do what it wants and a quick oil and filter change using cheap parts and hope it will be ok and charge less – or even the same – we don’t do that.

We will never compromise on parts or labour – it is a false economy – the machine will fail. We do it properly and by the book and charge fairly – every time.

Air compressor Service Contracts

We offer a comprehensive but flexible contract which we can adjust to suit any machine anywhere in the UK.

The furthest UK based compressor which we actually work on is in The Outer Hebrides and so we are not afraid to travel - Glasgow is another hotspot for us - in London and the M25 we have many customers, but our base is in the Midlands - ready to travel anywhere.

We are happy to work on a written service plan and you have no need to sign anything.

There is no need to be tied into a contract - if it doesn't work for you, then you need to be able to get out of it straight away with no penalty.

Prices are very good and make good sense.

Air compressor Preventative Maintenance Plans

I am happy to inspect your whole compressed air requirement and produce a detailed plan which will include your projected costings for set work over the following 12 months. This will help you to budget for maintenance cost and you can pay monthly if you wish at no extra cost.

Stand-by air compressors are without doubt the best decision you could ever make. If you use compressed air as part of your product or process then a stand-by unit is a must.

Consider this – if for whatever reason your compressor stopped or malfunctioned, you might know the best compressor engineer in the world - BUT - is he busy? Will he answer his phone? Can he come now? Where is he? how long will it take him to get to you? How long will it take to sort the problem? Has he got the right spares with him? Can he get the right spares now – what a drama! The answer – press the start button on your stand-by compressor and the heat is off. Yes you still have to sort the problem with your old unit but you are back in business and the emergency has passed.

We usually have a supply of suitable standby compressors at sensible prices - we can even write one in to the monthly cost of your maintenance agreement if you wish.

Your Location

Where you are situated in the UK does not matter as we are prepared to travel anywhere at cost. We have engineers placed all over the country and can usually be with you very quickly.
